BENEFITING: PRAYERS FROM MARIA FOUNDATION
EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2013
EVENT DATE: Oct 27, 2013
it is an honor to be running for such an incredible cause. Please watch the moving video about Maria. Last year Dave ran his first marathon, the MCM. I am excited that my first marathon will be the MCM and that I will be running for Prayers From Maria.
Prayers From Maria is proud to be a charity partner of the 2013 Marine Corps Marathon. Our team members are raising funds that will go directly to children's glioma brain tumor research.
Thousands of children are diagnosed with cancer each year. One-third of those children are diagnosed with brain tumors, and nearly half of those brain tumors are gliomas. Over 97% of children with the worst of the gliomas, diffuse pontine gliomas, die within three years. We cannot ignore this shocking statistic, and we hope that you won’t either. We need your help.
The Prayers from Maria Foundation is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for the deadliest childhood brain tumors known as gliomas; raising public awareness about gliomas and bringing hope to children and their families who deal with the hardships of this disease.
